A Few Things I’ve Learned About Korea


  1. All Korean women wear high heels with everything... even sweatpants!
  2. Most Korean people wear socks with their sandal.  Someone call the fashion police now!
  3. Korean people don’t drink Diet Coke! (gasp) I know... it took me 3 days, but I finally found some at an American restaurant.
  4. Korean drivers are scary!  They cut people off, speed like crazy, and they probably wouldn’t think twice about hitting you.
  5. English is written on nearly every sign, so it’s not that hard to get around town.
  6. Korean people love cartoon characters!  Cartoon images are seen on almost every sign around town.
  7. Guys in Korean do not wear shorts... it’s either pants or capris.
  8. At every meal, they serve alcohol.  The men drink soju like it’s water.
  9. Koreans eat all the time!  I think I’ve gained 10 pounds from eating every 30 minutes.  Personally, I think it’s their excuse to socialize & drink.
  10. Almost all men here smoke non-stop.  Gross!
